15th World Conference on Disaster Management

Thinking about a useful forum to pick up insight and exchange ideas with some of the best risk professionals in the world? Look no further than the 15th World Conference on Disaster Management (WCDM), an event put on by the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness (CCEP) that will kick off this Sunday (July 10) and continue until Wednesday the 15th.

Having attended this and other similar conferences, I can say without a doubt that this is among the best. The theme for this year's event is "THE CHANGING FACE OF DISASTER MANAGEMENT - Defining The New Normal" and conference organizers are posing a challenge:
With the conference theme of "The Changing Face of Disaster Management - Defining The New Normal", we are asking our presenters to challenge the delegates with some controversial ideas and out of the box thinking. We keep hearing the term, "the new normal", but what exactly does is mean?

If you haven't yet registered, there's still time to get on board. We look forward to seeing you there.
